1 SOCK IT TO ’EM

Dust your blinds or ceil­ing fan us­ing a cot­ton sock and a so­lu­tion of equal parts white vine­gar and wa­ter. Clean these fix­tures first, as dust will drop on to the sur­round­ing sur­faces.

2 WHIZZ ROUND

Make light work of your vac­u­um­ing with a high per­for­mance, cord­less, free­stand­ing vac­uum cleaner. Its ex­tra-long run­ning time and su­per-light de­sign al­lows you to whizz round your whole home in record time.

3 ALLERGY ALERT

Vac­uum your hard floors rather than sweep­ing them to pre­vent allergy-ag­gra­vat­ing dust waft­ing into the air.

4 SOFA SO GOOD

When spot clean­ing your sofa or rug, avoid sat­u­rat­ing the fab­ric and re­mem­ber to blot dry rather than rub.

5 FRESHEN UP

To re­move lin­ger­ing smells from your sofa, sprin­kle it with bak­ing soda, leave for 20 min­utes, then vac­uum it up.
